Our new addition!

Sorry Saturday, but Tuesday just may be my new favorite day of the week. It was a big day for us here at the Welch household.

So who’s ready for the news?…..

1) We accepted our first child referral! A precious newborn baby boy! Now we’re just waiting for our second little one, hopefully not too far around the corner. READ MORE

2) We received our approval letter for a matching-grant through Hand in Hand Christian Adoption! This means that Hand in Hand will match any funds that are donated for the expenses of our adoption dollar for dollar up to $5,000! Not only that, but now all donations are tax-deductible! Deadline is April 5, 2011.  FIND OUT MORE

So thank you, Lord! You are good! You are SO good! And just when I think you’re done, you just keep on comin’!

    • Thanks, Julie! We’ll probably be going to get him in 3-4 months from now. But we’re also waiting for our second child now, too. Hopefully not much longer!


  2. Congratulations! I am very happy for you but even more so for two extremely blessed children who will not have to live and die in DR Congo. This is the ultimate life-changer for these two. Well done. Love More

  6. How exciting and daunting. I am asking the Lord to help you to know what to do next and then for you to be calm enough to do it every step of the way. God bless you and keep your growing family. Much love. MJ
